I had the T400 tranny redone a couple years back, put 3.73 gears in the rear end and just replaced the tired 305 with a fairly strong 350. We are shopping for a travel trailer or maybe a camper on a trailer. I don't want a typical toy hauler, too big and I don't like the idea of hauling a muddy stinky atv in the middle of my living space down the road. If we get a travel trailer then the atv will have to stay at home when we use it. So, I'm scheming.
    If I were you I would get a flatbed with a 10' non cabover alaskan truck camper or even a cabover one on a slightly built up frame so that the quad can go under the cabover part.

    I have considered doing it but I want to use a 1ton Truck Utility bed and put the Alaskan in it

    I tried to get a flatbed with a 10' non cabover alaskan truck camper. I think it is good and efficient. I really enjoy to travel with it.

    another option, and one that I would seriously consider knowing what I now know, would be to buy a 8 foot pop-up camper, remove the frame and mounit it sideways ontop of a 25 foot deck-over triple axle trailer. Once the camper is open and folded out you will have more room than you would with a truck camper, and if you are like me and do all of your camping spring thru fall then you dont need the minimal insulation provided by a truck camper anyway. with this set up, you would have room for the camper and 4 ATV's...... and with an overall length of about 30 feet, you can still get it into most places.

    Nice setup!
    A gun is like a parachute. If you need one, and don’t have one, you’ll probably never need one again
